Peeling type of exfoliator are quite famous in korean skincare when it comes to skin exfoliation. They are mostly acid based exfoliator with cellulose or very fine soft textured granules which cling to skin waste aiding in skin exfoliation, while acid used (mostly Vitamin C or a mild AHA is used) further refine skin texture! Since, I was also very much intrigued the way it functions and ended up buying easily available Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener. The terms like “skin brightening”, “mild exfoliation”, “anti aging benefit from wine”, “skin soothing” and most importantly “skin softening and moisturizing” captivated my eyes!! 👀
So, is it effective? or is it safe on skin? is it really mild? Read along!! 🤞
Since, nothing is mentioned on labelling, I am assuming Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener is suitable for all skin types.
Not Suitable for:
Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener is not a good option for extremely oily skin, acne prone skin and sensitive skin. It is free from any skin irritating ingredients but the way it works, that’s not good for acne prone skin or sensitive skin.
Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:
From Cosdna Analysis, it is seen that it contains many skin benefit ingredients and all the ingredients are safe to use but unfortunately, Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener reacted on my skin. I tried using it for 3-4 times but every time I used, I ended up with a rash or a pimple on my skin! Since, I have used many products with most of the ingredients used in this product, so I am kinda sure that it must be the “Wine Extract” that reacted on my skin. Still I am not sure!!
Below is the notable active ingredients in the product:
- Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract: Anti-inflammatory
- Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract – anti-aging.
- Wine Extract – antioxidants, anti-aging, tartaric Acid, Skin lightening.
- Fig – Moisturize skin.
- Beta Glucan – Antiallergic
- Sodium Hyaluronate and Ceramide 3 – Skin moisturizing.
How to use:
Since, Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener is an exfoliator, do keep in mind following things:
- Use it for 1-3 times in a week, depending upon the skin type.
- Do not use it with other products that have exfoliating effect.
- Use it only at night
- This is a wash off kind of exfoliator.
- Use it after cleansing.
- Do a patch Test.
I was using it for once a week after cleansing. But since it reacted on my skin, I ended up using on Knees and elbow for exfoliation, for 2 times a week.
Cleansing> Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener > Toner > Essence > Eye Cream > Moisturizer
Tip: Unless a product is severely reacted on your skin or in general you are allergic to the ingredients, do not throw away the product, try using it on neck or on body or just share with your family member, because skin on face is more sensitive than rest of the body!

Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener is viscous and has a very slight granular texture. It has a sweet smell of wine! I am personally not a fan of sweet smelling products.
So far, Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener is the only Innisfree product that reacted on my skin and I really didn’t like anything about it!! Still I am giving whatever unbiased review I could give based on how far it worked on my knees and elbow!

- Waste of money! Nothing awing!!
Do I recommend it? Not actually! There are better exfoliating product!
Will I repurchase? Nah Never! It reacted on my skin! I did try on face for 3-4 times but every time a rash or a pimple said hi on next day!! 😱
